mishmash
February 8th, 2016 Barrio Logan, Mary, San Diego County mary 2 Comments

I’m always trying to look for new places and last weekend was no exception! After running around town doing some errands on Friday, Jake, T and I headed to a new spot over in the revamped Barrio Logan (did you know they got a gateway sign in 2014 – I didn’t until I saw it!). The place? A new joint called MishMash. Talking to our waitress, we found out they are still in the “soft opening” stage and have only …

baguette bros

Every other week I find myself down in the Convoy area and this week I decided to stop by a new restaurant for a little bit of lunch. I had heard about Baguette Bros from one of my co-workers and decided to go check it out. Baguette Bros is in one of the oh-so-slightly larger lots – the same lot that houses Jeong Won Korean BBQ Buffet.

They’ve got a big “Grand Opening” banner up over the shop so it’s easy …

havana grill
January 20th, 2016 Clairemont, Mary, San Diego County mary 2 Comments

On Saturday after running a few errands, it was time for Jake and I to have some “real lunch”! I picked Havana Grill since we were in the area and I had been curious about Havana Grill. I had seen it was finally open and wanted to check it out with Jake.

Havana Grill is in that little plaza off Clairemont Mesa Blvd. at the 805 when you start heading west. The smaller one that’s slighter harder to park in. Surely …

embargo grill

Last month (also last year! haha!) Laura and I went out for a little dinner to a spot I’d been meaning to check out for awhile: the Embargo Grill. It’s a Cuban place down in the Sports Arena area (just a couple doors down from the Cravory and in the same lot as the amusingly named taco shop “It’s a Taco Shop”). 

I remember this spot used to be a burger place called BGR the Burger Joint. Looking back at my …

sunny side kitchen
December 28th, 2015 Escondido, Mary, San Diego County mary 6 Comments

A few weekends ago Jake, T and I were up in North County land for another one of Jake’s chiropractor appointments. This little jaunts up north allow us to explore some unknown territory and with the help of the internet I scoped out a place called Sunny Side Kitchen in Escondido.  

Sunny Side Kitchen is a super cute little cafe that’s open for breakfast and lunch. There are a few outdoor tables, too, so you could bring along a furry companion …

crest cafe
December 21st, 2015 Hillcrest, Mary, San Diego County mary 2 Comments

A few weeks ago I was invited to head down to Crest Cafe for a blogger dinner – complete with a van ride thanks to the fine folks from The DD (Drunk Driver) Van Service. Van ride = I don’t have to try and search for parking in Hillcrest = score for me!

I once went to the family owned Crest Cafe many years ago. I think I had a burger there and sat in one of the booths in the …

d bar… for the last time
December 7th, 2015 Hillcrest, Mary, San Diego County mary 4 Comments

I’ve been to D Bar in Hillcrest many, many times. One of the first times we went was during our Bacon Crawl back in 2013. I’ve also gone for a few birthdays and just as a treat and I was very sad to learn that D Bar will be closing up shop on December 20th. Excuse me while I weep over a bowl of crue fries!
Jake, T and I went last night for one of our last dinners at D …
